JAPETH Aguilar's long-awaited move to Barangay Ginebra is pushing through afterall.
Multiple sources told Spin.ph on Monday that sister teams Ginebra and Petron and league newcomer Globaport are putting the final touches on a deal revolving around the high-leaping Aguilar.
The final draft of the trade has yet to be approved by all the parties, but the main deal that would have Aguilar moving to Ginebra for rookie center Yousif Taha and a future first-round draft pick has already been sealed, sources said.
Globalport, the sources added, is also involved in another swap with Petron that would have the Batang Pier acquiring Jay Washington for rookie gunner Jason Deutschmann.
To complete the shake-up of Ginebra's lineup, the league's most popular team is also sending high-flyer Elmer Espiritu to Barako Bull for a future draft pick.
Sources said the multi-layered deal could be approved as early as Tuesday pending the final talks between the two SMC clubs and Globalport team owner Mikee Romero.
The deals come on the heels of another three-team trade that started with Talk 'N Text sending injured guard Jared Dillinger to Barako Bull for Sean Anthony.
Dillinger, in turn, was packaged by Barako Bull with Don Allado and sent to Meralco for Ronjay Buenafe and rarely used Gilbert Bulawan. The deals were approved by the PBA Commissioner's Office on Monday.
